Comments:
This is the last of my photos from the carpenter ant swam on Canada Day. This shows an ant in the process of losing its wings. The winged form of ants is known as an "alate". It may look dead but it was not. They look to be in a lot of distress when they lose the wings. It was on a red patio cushion.
